fraud we had 235 cases that we had identified before we put this photo i.d. law in place. in this last election the photo i.d. law which as you mentioned is the one of the toughest in the country worked well. 2.2 million cast ballots. of those only 838 forgot to bring a photo i.d. to the polls. that et cetera fewer than 1 in 1,000 voters. they were giive provisional ballots. they came n the vote of election and make their vote out. to date we are not finding anyone who actually didn't have a photo i.d. the bottom line is it's a common sense easy way to prevent some forms of voter fraud and it is a fact that exists. voter fraud is very real in the america. >> you said 235 claims of voter fraud who is making this allegations. >> he'll 235 verified cases been reported between 1997 and 2010. >> and you so -- so you had reported to whom by whom? are they real? are you sure of that? >> yeah. well, and these reported to the county clerks and the cases that couldn't be, you know, were not credible were not included. credible reports of voter fraud to the county clerks or to the secretary of st
in the united states. they are laws to protect the privacy of patients. what the nurse receptionist did in telling the callers what the condition of the patient was, you know, she had rest all the rest of it that would be impermissible in the united states. and the fact that it was the duke duchess of cambridge i think maybe makes it more egregious. pranks you and i do radio. we have -- you know, sometimes we have fun doing it. but to do it at someone else's expense in this regard is just horrible. now, something said that. i think to pin the suicide of the woman on the radio dj's is really farfetched. i spoke to some doctors today who told me that when someone is bound do kill themselves. the call may be the trigger but something else. to leave a husband and two small children behind there had to be something going on in this poor woman's head. this thing pushed her over the edge. >> laura: geraldo, it's part of the whole problem we have right now. we have a lot of problems in this country. this culture where the more outrageous or the more, i don't know, profane or the more you debase
and workers are standing at the precipice of. with me is syracuse university law professor and pulitzer prize investigative reporter, david johnson, who provides details on how big corporations use plain english to rob you blind. in his book, "the fine print." loretta sanchez, carmin wong-ulrich, and matt welch. so nice to have you all at the table. >> good morning. >> thank you. good morning. >>> david, i stole that cyborg a bit from your text. i thought it was useful. if we are going to call them people, the kind of people they are is not immoral but amoral, interested only in profits but willing to work with the law but in a ray that erodes what our capacities are. play that out for me. >> society is defined by its rules. what we have been doing quietly and without the news media covering it is rewriting the rules. the rules of competition are being thwarted or repealed. everyone in america has had a legal right to the telephone. you have to pay for it. that's been repealed in six. they can say, sorry, we are not going to serve you. >> i think the language has been about this $2,000. if we
. smith: mr. speaker, h.r. 6620, the former presidents protection act of 2012, amends federal law to uniformerly provide lifetime secret service protection to all of america's former presidents. i want to thank the gentleman from south carolina, mr. gowdy, and the gentleman from virginia, mr. scott, for sponsoring this commonsense bipartisan legislation. america has a responsibility to protect its presidents and its families and not simply while they serve in office. we also have a duty to ensure the ongoing safety of those who serve in america's highest elected office after they leave office. in 1958 congress first authorized secret service protection for former presidents, which was limited to a reasonable period of time after a president leaves office. congress expanded this to lifetime protection in 1965. but in 1994, congress once again limited secret service protection for former presidents. this time to 10 years after a president leaves office. this 10-year restriction applied to presidents who took office after january 1, 1997. the role of the former president has changed
to federal and state laws. one case involves the federal defense of marriage act, which denies federal benefits to same sex couples legally married in their own state. the other is a challenge to california's prop 8, which took away the right of same sex marriage that had been previously approved by state courts. >>> florida governor charlie crist completed his political transformation. crist was elected governor as a republican in 2006, then later ran for the senate as an independent. he campaigned for president obama, and spoke at the democratic national convention. he's now officially a democrat and is widely expected to run for governor again in 2014. >>> south africa's beloved nelson mandela is getting tests in a hospital. the country's president says no cause for alarm there. he says the 94-year-old mandela is getting tests consistent with his age. the nobel laureate became his nation's first black president. >>> the fbi wants to talk to a man in custody in egypt. he's a well known islamic extremist. that's why egypt wanted him taken down. but american terrorist watchers think he
legalized it within the last decade. washington's marijuana law makes it the only state that allows recreational pot use. by the way, colorado is just a couple of months away from enacting the very same freedoms. while it seems legal, is it really? those two states voted to make it so but the federal government still says it isn't so. quite frankly, nobody really knows who trumps who here in the political debate. the governors of both of those states say that the feds haven't even started talking to them yet. but how to reconcile these two laws that are diametrically opposed. the feds may be tipping their hands when and making plans for a bit after crackdown on these brand-new state freedoms. what the feds do could ultimately reverse what those states did. more likely what the state voters did which means that the supreme court may end up the ultimate referee in all of this. joining me now is the former u.s. attorney general in the bush administration, alberto gonzalez. probably one of the better voices to ask about what's happening. thank you so much for being on the program. did y
the law? well, let's consider the 14th amendment. nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protections of the laws. and here is justice kennedy, anthony kennedy, in his majority opinion in the lawrence case of 2003 which declared anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional. quote, does a statute making it a crime for two persons of the same sex to engage in certain intimate sexual conduct violate the due process clause? yes. a statute making it a crime for two persons of the same sex to engage in certain intimate sexual conduct violates the due process law. quote, liberty protects the person from unwarranted government intrusions. freedom extends upon spatial bounds. liberty presumes an autonomy of self that includes freedom of thought, belief, expression, and certain intimate conduct. the defendants are adults, and their conduct was in private and consensual, and, quote, to declare the issue as one related to the right to engage in certain sexual conduct demeans the claim the individual
. and conflating the two creates a lot of confusion. so if a jewish professor at columbia law school writes a journal article defending the legality of israeli settlements, it's almost certainly not because the lobby orders or even prodded the professor. but because of the professor's personal identification with the jewish state. it's not a conspiracy, it's just ethic chauvinism. however, whereas it's almost guaranteed that the israel lobby will back the israeli government's current policies, whatever they happen to be and however indefensible they might be, that's, after all, what lobbies for foreign governments do. still, there's no guarantee that the jewish community will reflectsively -- reflectsively support these policies. the backing of american jews for israel has historically been conditional, and it's been circumstantial. it's been shaped by three factors; ethnicity, citizenship and ideology. plainly, american jews support israel in much higher percentages and with much greater fervor than most americans because israel calls itself a or this jewish state, and jews consequently fe
on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. law professor jonathan terly has all the details. >> thanks for watching. john boehner isn't having a lot of fun this holiday season. president obama continues his pressure campaign to pass the tax cuts. the president is also taking time to be fesive. john boehner doesn't sound so merry. >> no progress report because there's no progress to report. when it comes to the fis e call cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wasted another week. >> the phone call was pleasant, but was just more of the same. the conversations that the staff had yesterday, just more of the same. it's time for the president if he's serious to come back to us with a counteroffer. >> even though the president apparently designed the negotiating sessions at boehner's request. according to "the new york times," boehner insisted the talks include only himself and the president of the united states. boehner wanted senate democrats and nancy pelosi out of the discussions. democratic senator dick durbin told the times this is now the speaker and the pr

it was in bad taste and ill-judged that any laws were broken by his two deejays making this prank call, so, again, a lot of sadness and regret being expressed. >> hard to imagine that it has taken the turn that it has. matthew chance, thank you very much. >>> the supreme court is stepping right into the middle of the same-sex marriage debate. the justices have decided to hear two important cases which will no doubt have major ramifications. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns has a look for us. >> reporter: randi, after weeks of speculation, the court decided to take up two cases on the issue of same-sex marriage. the first one is about the defense of marriage act, windsor against the united states. edith windsor and her partner were married in toronto, canada in 2007. spire died in 2009 in new york at a time when new york recognized same-sex marriages that had been performed outside the side. when spire died windsor was required to pay $363,000 in federal estate taxes on her inheritance that she would not have had to pay if federal law had given their relationship the same sta
things that could rap right now is the house could vote and the president would sign into law legislation that would provide certainty for middle-class families. 98% of american families, and some 97% of small businesses. so it's time for the house to act. secondly, i think we have to take steps to make sure that we're creating jobs at a faster pace, as i mentioned before. i'm introducing legislation today to help middle-class families and -- middle noik families and to boost hiring. it would expand the payroll tax cut from last year for one year and give employers a tax credit for hiring. and i'll be talking about that legislation. now, the payroll cut that we -- tax cut that we put into place last year had a number of benefits. i won't go through all of those today but the joint economic committee, the committee of which i'm the chairman, just put out a report in the last 24 hours, it's a fact sheet that highlights some of the benefits of the payroll tax cut. mr. president, just for the record i would ask consent that the joint economic committee fact sheet on the payroll tax cut dated
law, in their words, to interfere with domestic laws in the united states, whether federal law, state, or local laws. and one of the most recent major reasons why they rejected this treaty, these republicans by in large voted again ratifying this treaty was because of the powerful words that rick santorum, the former republican presidential candidate said. as you know, he has a severely disabled child, a little girl. he said, i don't want international lawyers, i don't want the united nations and new york and foreign countries telling me and our local officials what they can or cannot do as far as treatment for little bella, his daughter. and that was a powerful factor in convincing a lot of these republicans to reject this treaty. they didn't see that they needed the international community, in effect, to get involved in what was going on here in the united states. the counterargument, of course, is we want to bring, by ratifying this treaty, to bring the rest of the world up to the u.s. standards in hoping those with disabilities but that obviously didn't resonate, at least not enou
comments online? >> we're seeing another information where technology has outstripped the law. you know, in the past to get published in a newspaper, to get widespread distribution of your complaints against somebody, very hard. you have to get a newspaper to take you seriously. they have to have a big readership. now you just go online. i was reading one account that said yelp has as many as 83 million visitors to the sites. you can literally destroy a business by posting negative things about the business. it's tough on the businesses. they have very little recourse. the communications decency law that protects angie's list and yelp from being sued. they can say, hey, we're just a forum. if people want to post, they can post. the only thing a business can do is sue, saying you defamed me and i'm going to sue you for money damages. suits like this will scare people from posting on the internet and we'll have less free speech and less exchange of ideas and people kind of like the fact that you can go on the internet and check people out. so this is an evolving area of the law. i think y
a skilled work force. -- that is what grows the economy. how do we get there? first of law, we need to get -- how do we get them? -- how do we get there? we can have a serious discussion once we get republicans to agree we are not going to end medicare as we know it. once we get that agreement the we will meet our promise to our seniors now and in the future -- we are not going to cut benefits or shift the costs to individual seniors and their families, we are not going to kick people out of nursing homes, which is medicaid, then we can have a serious discussion about how you create that sustainability. >> they seem to have taken those off the table. >> yes and no. they are saying we can cut $400 billion from medicare in the right where and $200 billion out of medicaid. let's have a discussion. the most chronically ill people need to get the health care they need in the most cost-efficient way. that they have health coverage over their lives. that can make a big difference in medicare going forward. there are a lot of cuts coming out of discretionary spending. a lot of those on health prog
had signed the social security act and fair labor standards act into law but the united states still had no national program for addressing the health needs of the people. the 1938 health conference was the beginning of something different. instead of inviting only doctors to speak, the conference for the first time included members of labor unions, farm groups and civil rights organizations. included representative not just of the medical profession but of the people who need it and use health care. a woman named florence greenberg traveled from chicago, illinois to washington to offer her testimony. she was a member of the women's auxiliary of the steelworkers organizing committee, spending her days working in communities around the steel mills. greenberg told the audience at the national health conference that she had come to offer them a different picture of chicago. just steps away from the comfortable headquarters of the american medical association, tenements, a 6 chicago where people struggled with terrible health conditions related to poverty and unemployment and struggled t
passage of this law unconstitutional. if that right to work law passes, union supporters are convinced pay and benefit could take a major dive. the latest bureau of labor statistics for 2011 put the median salary for full-time union workers at about $940 week compared to about $730 a week for nonunion workers. the head of the united auto workers not happy. >> the data and all the facts show that right to work is the right to work for less. >> susan, supporters including republicans led by gop governor rick snyder maintain that this bill will wind up helping the economy and not hurting it, right. >> that's right allison. the governor insists that the right to work bill will save jobs and increase salaries by not forcing union dues on workers. here's michigan governor rick snyder. >> to give freedom of choice to our workplace and that legislators move promptly and efficiently in moving it through the legislature and when it arrives on my desk, i plan on signing it. >> susan, are we going to see more of the same this week? what kind of turnout are you expecting to see at michigan's capitol wh
to possess up to an ounce of marijuana. the new law took effect at midnight and people marked the occasion with a pot party at seattle space needle overnight. it's not a blanket license to smoke pot anywhere anytime. cnn's miguel marquez has been up all night, live in seattle for us. so it's not illegal to smoke marijuana but the whole distribution network of marijuana and the distribution and sale of marijuana is still illegal. there's a big asterisk here for recreational pot users. >> reporter: for now it is. in the next year or so that will be taken care of, as this law takes effect. but today was the first big step in what people here are calling a revolution. that pot, less than an ounce is now legal to possess and use. ♪ ♪ i messed up my entire life because i got high ♪ >> reporter: anything less than an ounce no longer illegal in washington state. >> it's amazing. i'm not a cell anymore. i can't go to jail for small amounts of marijuana, you know. i'm free to be free. >> reporter: several dozen hard core smokers showed up here to the base of the space needle, the symbol of the
in the the health care law might mauck you down right sick right now. the white house just announcing plans to slap health insurers with a fee if they sell insurance dictated by the president's health care law and larry says you'll pay for it no matter where you live, huh? >> that's right. that's right, you know, administrative costs and health care are already skyrocketing and this is going it to get past the consumer just like everybody else. we already see skyrocketing health care costs, 14% is administrated, it's just too much. >> some parts of the law lower prices and is it net neutral, basically? >> i think the only given is that the country as a whole is goingo spend mor on health care andore people are going to have insurance one way or another, gun point are fine or whatever it is, but the actual premiums among are necessarily going to change. although there are plenty of things to raise your premium, not allowing the insurance company to reject, is going to raise premiums and some premiums are paid for like a tax next year, on capital gains for wealthy people, it's not health care payment
will be available for same-sex couples in washington state as well. the state's governor signed the law into effect wednesday and takes effect today. some counties there started issuing wedding ser tiff katz and licenses just after midnight. also today in washington state, recreational use of marijuana is now legal. >>> this afternoon, the first family will flip the switch for the lighting of the christmas tree. actor neil patrick harris will host this year. the event will have performances by james taylor, kjason mraz, ad the fray. we're going to be there. you look for live coverage on nbc 4 and our website, nbcwashington.com. 15th street will be closed between constitution at pennsylvania avenues. 17th street will be closed between constitution and new york avenues. but those roads should reopen around 7:00. >> it's always a very lovely event. it is now 4:37. 37 degrees out there. be careful what you post online. the judge's order for a woman who wrote negative reviews on yelp. >> a rare storm down under. it's left quite a mess. >>> a shock to the system as you step outside. how long >>> a rare t

. federal law signed into law by president clinton in 1996. it says if a person is legally married in a state, the federal government can't recognize those marriages. that's where you talked about federal benefits heterosexual couples get and same sex couples do not. the prop 8 thing is bigger. while potentially it's confined to the state of california only, the question it out there having given the right to gay marriage could the state then take it away through proposition 8 passed by a majority of the vote nurse 2008. having taken that case, the court could get to the bedrock issue. can any state refuse to let same sex couples get married under the federal constitution. it could potentially be narrow or very far. >> pete, as i understand it, let me ask you. this one of these things, maybe the driving one, is defense of marriage act was about paying the estate act. where one of the two people said she didn't have to pay the estate tax because a married couple wouldn't have to. >> reporter: this is a case from new york. a woman named edie windsor who married her partner in canada.
support for this cruel and inhumane sport. very simply, it provides new tools to law enforcement through the animal-fighting spectator prohibition act, so that it cannot only eliminate illegal animal fights but also the activities that may be attendant to them and may be even more harmful to the public welfare. these crimes are a federal matter, and they require a federal response because often an animal-fighting ring involves players from many different states, a county sheriff, or a local prosecutor simply lacks the authority to root out, apprehend, and effectively prosecute such an operation. this bill has the support of many law enforcement organizations. i thank them, including the federal law enforcement officers association, the fraternal order of police, county sheriffs from across the country have signed on as supporters, along with the american veterinary medical association and the humane society of the united states, and i hope that it will have support from this chamber. i thank the president and i yield the floor. and i would ask for the yeas and nays. apparently i can ask
is not going to obey the gun laws. they are going to find a gun or find another weapon. >> stretching and shooting to syria and chemical weapons seems like a bit of a stretch. the implications of that is that every american should have access to chemical weapons and nuclear weapons. it will result in weapons ownership. look at europe and the rest of the world. we are way, way out there. we have the highest murder rate in the world. >> abbey, here is what they say to me. each time it is the same debate and nothing gets done about it. 300 million guns and you have between 11 and 12,000 guns and murders a year. britain has 35 as does germany and australia. to countries that have strict gun kcontrol have little gun murder. i think carole had it right. she said it is about personal responsibility. that is the most important part. it is a difficult one. people are going to have an oh w pinion about it. we have to make sure that they were -- wanted the american people to feel protected about the british at the time. i don't think people should be able to go online and buy guns. there should
? you can't just say oops. >> reporter: if you read the language closely in some laws, it talks about that personal responsibility, but ultimately for the person that's hiv positive, these laws are really targeting those people specifically and i think this whole notion of what they're obligated to do, what punishment they may incur is really what's at the heart of the issue. >> still a question mark. sanjay gupta, thank you so much. see more reporting from sanjay this weekend. saturday afternoon, 4:30. wolf blitzer is in "the situation room." >>> happening now. breaking news, united states supreme court just announced it will decide two highly controversial cases about gay marriage. >>> also, retailers gearing up for the holidays are having a big impact on the nation's unemployment rate. but if you look closer, there's a disturbing trend in the latest job numbers. >>> plus, president obama's top strategist as you've never seen him before. >>> and during this hour, a member of the cnn team is ready to up the ante and reach for his own shaving cream. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the si

in the treaty that interferes with u.s., federal or state laws, nothing. that didn't stop mr. santorum to send out this e-mail to supporters after the vote saying you did it. you made it happen. if it weren't for you, the u.s. senate wouldn't have defeated the united nations convention on the rights of person with disability. he went on to say, quote, this treaty would have given the u.n. oversight of the health care and education choices parents with special needs kids make. had it passed, crpd would have been the law of the land under the u.s. constitution supremacy clause and trumped state laws and could have been used as precedent by state and federal judges. again, that's not true. why the fudging of facts? we asked senator santorum on the program tonight. he declined, and like the others that won't explain themselves, we can guess their motivations and frankly it's so baffling we're taking wide guesses and we don't want to do that. the treaty supporters say that politics and a paranoia about the u.n. trumped the rights of the disabled in this vote. ted kennedy jr. is a health care attorn
